Currently, only Firefox would be required to change their prioritization scheme if the number of placeholders is 0.  Based on information I've seen(ie: the Cloudflare presentation and my own anecdotal experience), it's not clear their use of placeholders is any better than a scheme that does not use them, so I think it's possible Firefox could change their priority scheme and it would be faster.

Given that, and that placeholders are a new feature in H3, I'd prefer to allow the number to be 0.
